  •  wow, a little "organized religion" centric (0+ / 0-)

    don't you think?

    there's plenty of basis to contend that denying "special creation" reasonably requires rejecting Christianity.

    So rejecting Christianity makes one an atheist? What gall.

    That people can believe in a god with out the "one true church"™ is denied as well as Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and on and on.

      Uh, no--"rejecting Christianity" (which is what I wrote) does not imply being "an atheist." You've fabricated that out of nothing.

      This thread-let is about the reasons conservative Christians have for believing that there is a conflict between Christianity and the acceptance of evolutionary theory. That phenomenon has nothing to do with the existence of other religions. Whether Judaism, Hinduism, or Buddhism is reconcilable with evolution is utterly irrelevant to the topic at hand.

      That people can believe in a god with out the "one true church"™ is denied as well as Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and on and on.

      That's not actually a sentence, and its meaning is far from clear.
